"Anytime I’ve had an issue with one of my benefits, or really anything, (the staff) have been quick to assist me."
Army reservist Evan Morton was surprised to see so many veterans attending classes at SNHU. He read that the school was "military-friendly," but it wasn't until he arrived and started taking classes that he learned exactly what that meant.
"Anytime I've had an issue with one of my benefits, or really anything, (the staff) have been quick to assist me," says Morton. "And my professors are extremely flexible. I had to attend some mandatory training for a week recently and they were very understanding and let me make up the work."
Morton, who plans to be the first person in his family to earn a bachelor's degree, says he chose SNHU mainly because it offered an Army ROTC program and an excellent business education. He also felt, because of SNHU's small size, he would have plenty of opportunities to meet and network with a lot of people.
In his first semester, he joined the Future Business Leaders of America, Student Veterans of America, and the Economics and Finance Association. "I've been meeting a lot of people through all the clubs and events. I live off-campus but I doesn't feel like I'm a commuter," says Morton.
Even before he arrived at SNHU, Morton says the transfer admission staff made his decision simple by making the application process simple. "Once I told them what degree path I wanted to go with, I just went online and submitted my military transcripts and previous college experience and they got back to me within a couple of days. It was very easy."
